"end of run not found" means that either
- a command-line was not found for one (or more) of the commands that
cat5rancid issued to (or wants to) the device. eg: show version is
supposed to be run, we never saw "prompt> show version". thus,
premature disconnection and completely buggered devices do not trigger
complete/partial config removal.
- "prompt> exit" was not found, thus assume that somehow the exchange with
the device went awry.
- the end of the config (show config) was not found. for catos, that is
/^end$/. this the config was truncated for some reason.
all these measures (and those particular to other devices) are to TRY to
ensure that vendor X's UI/whatever bugs and temporary network failures
(etc) don't cause diffs.
setenv NOPIPE YES
cat5rancid -dl my_c6509
is often helpful.
